Shaving With La Toja Stick

Today is my first try using the shaving stick La Toja and let me say this now I'm not digging the scent one bit. Now that I have that out of the way I can tell you a little about this regarded shaving stick.

La Toja is a renowned Spanish brand known for its luxurious shaving products, including its iconic shaving stick. La Toja shaving sticks are celebrated for their rich lather and moisturizing properties, providing a smooth and comfortable shaving experience.

Made with natural ingredients, such as mineral salts from the La Toja island off the coast of Galicia in Spain, these shaving sticks offer a unique blend of nourishment and skincare benefits. The mineral salts are believed to have therapeutic properties, soothing the skin and leaving it feeling refreshed after each shave.

First Time Using Speick Shaving Stick

Today I use for the first time a shaving stick called Speick. I have used Arko's stick and on my first try I didn't use it correctly I was brought up on wet shaving charges for misuse of wet shaving equipment with the community. I did go back and make another video doing a stick shave properly. I will use the same method here using Speick.

This all came about during a conversation with my friend Dan he sent me two links to shaving sticks the Speick and the other La Toja. The La Toja has a scent that I clearly point out in the video I do not like but am willing to try in our next video.

The box that this came in has seen better days. Once it was removed from the box you could see the foil-like wrapping which covered the stick. Normally you would peal the foil back every time you need to reach an unused section of the stick. I didn't do that I pealed all the foil off I don't have a problem with doing it that way.

Infinity & Nebula Purple Shaving Bowl

Today I'm proud to introduce a new product from Wet The Face. Introducing 3D-printed shaving bowls. As I've said in the past I set out to learn Fusion 360 and in a few months I felt confident to create a few products and this is one of them.

The inside of our shaving bowl was designed to promote lather creation. The purpose of this specially designed textured bottom is to aid in breaking down the shaving soap or cream, incorporating air into the lather, and evenly distributing it across the bristles of the shaving brush. This process results in a thick, creamy lather that softens the beard hair, moisturizes the skin, and provides lubrication for a close, irritation-free shave.

Shaving & Talking #18

Today on shaving & talking I show some of the 3D-printed bowl designs I've been working on. We have two variants, WTF / no side logos / all shaving bowls have Wet The Face on the underside of the bowl. Unfortunately, due to the increased time of adding logos, each one will have a slightly different cost due to additional time and materials. Chuck our CAD designer is working on getting his bowls ready and he has one that takes the shape of our previous bowl from Alford.

I also plan on restocking the coconut bowls in a few weeks. Not only have these been great as shaving bowls, but I use mine for all kinds of things like holding chips, dips, and anything else you can think of.

Yaqi Excalibur and The SEnoch Comparison

Yaqi Excalibur and The SEnoch Comparison:

Today, we delve into the ongoing controversy surrounding the Yaqi Excalibur and The SEnoch from Classic Shaving. While many assume these razors are identical, why is Classic Shaving pricing them at $60 when they're available for $20 on Aliexpress? I set out to uncover the truth.

Shaving With PipeSmoke

Today I'm using the old stand-by PipeSmoke it never fails to impress me with just how amazing this scent is. The lather is just crazy rich and creamy the slickness and glide allow me to be aggressive with the single-edge razor. I can go over trouble spots without fear of irritation. The post-shave feel is always a pleasure.

My discussion this week in this video surrounds the Excaliber Vs Enoch are they the same? All signs point to yes so far. I did get the Excalibur order in and quickly looked and the razor head they are similar in appearance but I have not shaved with it yet which I will leave for the upcoming video. If this turns out to be the same product and Mr. Webster is just reselling the Excalibur as his own branded razor then I going to seek a refund and I encourage others to do the same because he has lied to us all. On the other hand, if Yaqi razors are working with him (like he said in our conversation) to come out with a razor based on the Excaliber then he is going to have to show me where the differences are (handle not included). For someone such as myself who supported his Occam razor line, I at least deserve to be told the truth we all do.
